I hope you all had a nice holiday weekend! We spent our time with a happy mixture of work and play, yesterday being mostly play with a side of flash flood warnings, but you know! We ended up just having a simple game night with friends, and I made this super quick cake batter cookie chips and dip combination for the a light dessert. Of course you know I had to find at least three different pretty ways to serve it or else this wouldn’t be casa Sugar & Cloth, right?!
If you’re following the recipe as is, be prepared to feed at least twenty people and you can take the bowl display route. If you’re having a smaller crowd, you can cut the portions in half and whip up little mini servings in shot glasses with a spreader and cookies on the side. I mean, I think that’s even cute enough to make Santa come out of hiding for a quick cookie chip, no?
- 1 box of funfetti or plain white cake mix
- 2 cups plain greek yogurt
- 1 cup Cool Whip
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
- chocolate cookie chips (buy them here)
Now here’s why this recipe takes all of four seconds to make, literally all you have to do is toss everything together in a large bowl and stir it with a spoon.
The trick to making the dip look picture perfect in a clear bowl is to make sure there are no air bubbles along the edges. To do that, just make sure when you’re filling the bowl to press the spoon against the edges.
Just in case you’ve never tried cookie chips, I apologize in advance for your future addiction. I gave my brother a bag to try, which he then saved for my Dad to try, which my Dad then got for Grandmother to try, which means that we have a three whole generations of cookie chip addicts.
